  • Motorola Xoom LTE “Pilot” Program Underway

    Motorola Xoom LTE “Pilot” Program Underway

    Quite a while ago, Verizon promised that its Motorola Xoom tablet would get an update allowing the slate to run on the carrier’s 4G LTE network by the Spring. If you’re somehow surviving under a rock and don’t know what that means, it’s a big deal. The increase in speed adds incalculable value to the tablet since, ya’ know, time is money. The only thing is that… Read More

  • RIM Launches Inexplicable BBM Music App

    RIM Launches Inexplicable BBM Music App

    Though Slacker and Pandora have made the migration, the BlackBerry App World’s selection of music apps is pretty limited compared to competing platforms. In fact, the App World is found wanting in a couple different categories. But that doesn’t mean RIM isn’t open to improvement, albeit incremental improvement. That said, RIM today announced its BBM Music app. It’s… Read More

  • EscapeCapsule Lets You Use Your iPhone 4 In Water, Sand, Mud, Snow, And Other Gross Stuff

    EscapeCapsule Lets You Use Your iPhone 4 In Water, Sand, Mud, Snow, And Other Gross Stuff

    There really should be no argument when I say that a case for your iPhone 4 is nothing short of necessary. Unless you’ve got cash to burn, the iPhone is just too damn expensive to leave unprotected. The only problem is that most of them make your phone pretty clunky, which sucks since Apple works hard to make the iPhone as slim as possible. Unfortunately, the only trade-off for all the… Read More

  • Samsung: We’re Not Buying HP’s PC Business

    Samsung: We’re Not Buying HP’s PC Business

    Since HP made the announcement it would be spinning off its PC business, there have been questions over who would scoop it up. A number of different OEMs fit the bill and have the cash to take on HP’s PSG, but one in particular seemed to be looking for an outsourcing partner before HP ever made its announcement. Digitimes reported that Samsung had been in talks with Quanta, Compal… Read More

  • Point, Apple: Court Issues EU-Wide Preliminary Injunction On Galaxy Smartphones (Update)

    Point, Apple: Court Issues EU-Wide Preliminary Injunction On Galaxy Smartphones (Update)

    A pretty sizable chunk of Europe was dealt a rather massive blow this morning in the form of a preliminary injunction on some Galaxy smartphones. Of course, this was at the behest of Apple. The tablets — the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 7 — made it out of the court room alive, which is a pretty big deal for Samsung who just a few weeks ago had to deal with an EU-wide… Read More

  • China Never Received An Application For Approval Of Googorola Deal

    China Never Received An Application For Approval Of Googorola Deal

    The era of Googorola is nearly upon us, and the implications of such a deal are still greatly unknown to most of us. We could see some pretty amazing (and odd) gizmos and gadgets spawn from this little get together, and we can definitely expect a stronger Android platform than ever before. Other Android OEMs have remained relatively at bay thus far, but that could change in an instant when… Read More

  • Logitech Introduces Surprisingly Useful New iPad Accessories

    Logitech Introduces Surprisingly Useful New iPad Accessories

    I’ve never really been a fan of all the special add-ons and accessories sold alongside electronics. In my opinion, a nice solid case is as far as phone/tablet accessories should go. But at a meeting with Logitech recently, a couple of iPad accessories definitely caught my eye. Both are very different in nature — one’s for gaming while the other is more of a utility device… Read More

  • CNN In Talks To Buy Zite iPad App?

    CNN In Talks To Buy Zite iPad App?

    Flipboard-esque magazine-style aggregation apps are all the rage right now. Obviously Flipboard has the space nailed, and Pulse is a nice alternative as well. But one aggregation app seems to have caught the attention of a big name news publication — Zite. The same company that once had a mailbox full of cease-and-desist notices from beastly publications like the Washington Post and AP… Read More

  • Microsoft Asks For An Import Ban On Motorola Smartphones

    Microsoft Asks For An Import Ban On Motorola Smartphones

    Exhausted from a couple weeks in the European litigation ring, Apple has tagged in Microsoft to pick up the fight against Android. And it would seem that the divide-and-conquer strategy is panning out quite nicely for the duo we never thought would be. Microsoft today filed a suit accusing Google’s betrothed, Motorola Mobility, of infringing on seven of Microsoft’s patents that… Read More

  • Canon Unveils New Line Of PowerShot Digital Cameras

    Canon Unveils New Line Of PowerShot Digital Cameras

    Nothing goes better with back-to-school clothes than a nice little point-and-shoot. Thus, Canon’s timing couldn’t be any better. Today the new PowerShot digital cameras are making their debut, and from the looks of it, Canon has its bases covered. We have three new models: the PowerShot SX150 IS, PowerShot Elph 510 HS, and the PowerShot Elph 310 HS. Most impressive by a mile is… Read More

  • Nokia’s Symbian Belle Teaser Gives Us Exact Arrival Date, Fails To Tease

    Nokia’s Symbian Belle Teaser Gives Us Exact Arrival Date, Fails To Tease

    Teasers are tricky. Companies have to find a way to get you excited about something without telling you what that something is, which can be difficult. It’s especially difficult to keep the secret product under wraps when the teaser file is named after the product. That said, Nokia’s Symbian Belle teaser is now more of an announcement than anything else, and we now know the… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Reveals “Live With Walkman” Android Smartphone

    Sony Ericsson Reveals “Live With Walkman” Android Smartphone

    Sony Ericsson knows how to do Facebook. A social network can’t be the only selling point of the phone, like on the HTC Status — there has to be something else. For gamers, SE brought Facebook into the mix with the Xperia Play. Now, music fans are getting the same love. This morning, SE unveiled the Live With Walkman smartphone featuring a button for instant music access and… Read More

    Review: Energizer Dual-Zone Inductive Charging Pad

    Short Version: Energizer’s Inductive Charging pad gets rid of the wires, looks nice, and just makes getting your charge on easier. Unfortunately, the accessories needed to use the charging pad make your phone fat and ugly. Read More

    Microsoft: Windows Phone Mango Is Done, Manufacturers Just Need To Release It

    Well, this is something new. Here in the tech world, we hear about delay after delay — but very rarely does a company step out and say: “Hey! We’re ahead of schedule!” Today, Microsoft was that company, and the product was Windows Phone 7 Mango. Read More

  • Apple’s “Inaccurate Evidence” Debacle, Part 2: Smartphone Edition

    Apple’s “Inaccurate Evidence” Debacle, Part 2: Smartphone Edition

    Apple has again submitted what the blogosphere is calling “inaccurate evidence” in its case against Samsung. A photo found on page 77 of Apple’s complaint to the Hague district court in the Netherlands shows the Samsung Galaxy S next to the iPhone 3G. And guess what! Apple screwed with the dimensions once again. But don’t freak out. This may not be as big of a deal… Read More

  • HTC Releases Evo 3D Bootloader Unlock Tool

    HTC Releases Evo 3D Bootloader Unlock Tool

    It’s only been a few days since HTC got its bootloader unlock tool up and running, but unfortunately it was only made available to owners of the European/international version of the HTC Sensation. Obviously that didn’t do a lot to help our American hackers get what they want. But today, HTC threw some love our way making the bootloader unlock tool available to owners of the HTC… Read More

    Leaked Droid Bionic Ad To Run Sunday, Dual-Core LTE Magic To Follow

    It’s been an excruciating wait for the Droid Bionic — a truly painful seven months. But over the past month, we’ve gotten our hands on little bits of relief. Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha promised a “September” release in late July, and just a week later, IGN found Verizon’s device road map which pegged the Bionic for a September 8 launch date. Today we… Read More
